Approach for CSR Project Evaluation  

This evaluation has the following objectives:

• To assess the nature and execution of the partnership; the effectiveness of EF and ABC approach and how effectively these two approaches are integrated and implemented.
• To assess the progress of the project against outputs and achievement of results to date.
• To identify challenges and provide recommendations to improve and/or adjust the project.
• To identify and suggest potential interventions and approaches for scaling up and replication.

 • Period of implementation of the project, i. e. 2014-2016.
